Electrical and computer engineering PhD student Zahra Ahmadian is the winner of the 2012 IEEE Canada Women in Engineering Prize. The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Canada annually awards the prize to the nominee who has demonstrated success in her undergraduate program and volunteer service to the IEEE.
Ahmadian’s commitment as an IEEE volunteer has given her the opportunity to organize seminars and professional workshops for women in engineering. Working with her supervisor Dr. Lutz Lampe, Ahmadian is currently designing ultra-wideband systems for short range, high capacity links.
